I have this tendency – to allow myself to be swayed by people and situations that could be perceived as negative. The operative phrase here is “could be perceived as negative”. Not actually negative, but my attitude makes me feel that it’s a foregone conclusion.
So, I am taking a different approach these days. Instead of embracing the potentially negative side of a person or situation, I am asking myself if my perspective is helpful or unhelpful. If my take is encouraging me to take value-creating action, then I keep it. If not, then I choose to shift.
Have a great day,
